Saturday marks the beginning of the WIAA Wrestling Tournament, with individual regionals set to begin across the state Saturday morning. Nate Woelfel of WisSports.net details how the tournament is set up, and some of the things to watch for Saturday.
Wrestling's unique tournament setup means that the regionals on Saturday actually set both the team sectionals on Tuesday and the individual sectionals on Saturday. Some wrestlers will get to compete in both events.
Another tournament quirk: A wrestler can advance to state and compete for a state championship even if they don't win a regional or sectional championship (or either).
